Blank

Standard

And her mind,

It goes blank

Before you can blink.

She is smiling

All the while hating herself.

And they keep talking

And talking

And she keeps laughing.

And she excuses herself to the bathroom

Where

She stares in the mirror

Wondering if she is really here.

Why all this noise?

Just noise

Coming from mouths who don’t care

What a heart beat is.

This air;

The air that leaves her lungs

As she whispers your name,

As you press against her

And hold her steady.

As you take her where she needs to go

Without hesitation.

We sit in the quiet and

Hear the stars resonate

In our very bones.

It’s all ok.

Breathe in unison.

You don’t even need to say

It is all okay.
